|Driventotears.com is going on hiatus
Not sure for how long. It may be for a few months or it may be for a year.
Long-term visitors probably have noticed a decline in the frequency and variety of updates in recent months. I've had this website for twelve years, and I've been a political junkie since the '92 campaign. It's just time for a little break and the Obama re-election is a nice bookend to the Clinton win of twenty years ago.
The site has basically been about being a subtle resource, collecting and disseminating information and articles that I felt worthy of attention for various reasons. It's not a money making venture, obviously. There's no advertising on the site, nor any product being sold.
As for me, I'm just a musician in NYC with a disability or two. My political insights framed early on, being a left-wing liberal raised in a right-wing conservative household. I know the conservative ideology. Authoritarianism, ethnocentrism, xenophobia, nationalism... I know it well. And I know how inherently dysfunctional it can be to society.
While the site is taking a hiatus here, my belief in liberal, progressive ideals remains a constant. I may still have a few sporadic updates over the following months if warranted, but nothing on the level previously known.
I hope this site has been of value to some of you
So, good night and good luck,
